Let’s Talk About the iPhone 11 Camera
Much like what was compared to the iPhone XS Max, the iPhone 11 Pro’s camera upgrades seem to come from the updated software Apple put inside their latest flagships. The technical aspects seem only marginally better, yet the highly accounted better results from the ISO capabilities bring intelligent shooting modes to the phone’s native camera. Highly-anticipated features, like Smart HDR and Night Mode, highly surface image-boosting computational photography topics that most devices are now known for (this goes for the Pixels). No matter the situation, Apple’s latest software brings a more pleasing and realistic rendering to most of the images produced, regardless of the megapixel count or stated aperture of the camera.
But, the SHARPNESS!
Though, let’s not argue with how increasingly sharp the camera’s production value has become. Although the main camera retains their 12 megapixel count, every sensor seems to be brand new (and it surely shows). The standard wide camera’s ISO increased by a near 33% and the tele camera’s aperture and ISO gains brings its light sensitivity up to a fantastical 42%. This means sharper photographs with faster shutter speeds that allow the photographer less blurry, grainy images. When showcasing night photography, the software improvements, as stated above, boast a higher digestion to lower night, making the images in Night Mode crisp and sound.
